Snow is falling! Skiers are skiing! Life is good!

Congrats to Stella, Rory, Jason, Lars, Liam, and Ian who raced in Spokane this weekend. Liam crushed, finishing in 2nd both days. Lars and Ian were hot on his heels on Sunday, finishing in 3rd and 4th. 

Notes, updates, reminders

  • Alpine skiing on Wednesday at Ski Hill
  • Race in Plain this Sunday! 6km skate nordic-cross. Should be wicked fun for all speeds and abilities. Register here.  
  • We will keep practicing as long as there snow is on the ground, races are approaching, and/or skiers are having fun, our best guess is 2-4 more weeks of organized practice.
  • There has been talk of outfitting a SoHo racing contingent. More info here. Registration closes March 5.
